his ideas for reform of the immigration system. >> president obama took air force one out to nevada yesterday for the first trip of his second term to talk immigration reform. in a big high school auditorium filled with people chanting to "yes, it's possible." president obama essentially said he's glad a bipartisan group of eight u.s. senators has come together to put the ideas they share into an immigration reform bill that president obama didn't exactly endorse the bill because it hasn't actually been written yet. something the president did say, though, is that a top priority needs to be giving illegal aliens a pathway to citizenship. >> we have to deal with the 11 million individuals who are here illegally. we all agree that these men and women should have to earn their way to citizenship. but for comprehensive immigration reform to work, it must be clear from the outset that there is a pathway to citizenship. >> the president also said that citizens shouldn't have to wait years for their families to join them here in the states, and that is where the differences between the pre

a favorable view of president obama's gun reform proposal. and while the gun lobby has come out against the president's entire plan, the numbers are pretty stark. 53% are favorable, 41% unfavorable. more interesting as you go into the poll, the favorables are much more intense than the unfavorables. which means that we've heard, for some time, richard wolffe, that, you know, the gun owners are so intense, and they're the ones that are going to always make phone calls and the ones that are going to always be engaged. and in this poll, and i'm sure we're going to see it in other polls, a majority of americans are more intense about passing some sane gun regulation than are those small groups of people that are going to fight the political death over assault weapons and being able to have high-capacity magazines. >> and a couple of things. first of all, if you break down the individual proposal, the support is even higher, right? universal background checks, you get way higher than 50%. and those numbers really reflect the president's own favorability right now. the other part of it is tha

by their parents. i commend him for making immigration reform a top priority. president obama will place to the nation his own ideas during a visit to las vegas tomorrow. with bipartisan support billing in both houses of congress and a president who is eager to solve this issue, there is no reason we should not pass comprehensive immigration reform immediately. it will be good for our economy and good for families. successful immigration reform cannot be piecemeal and it must include a path to citizenship for 11 million undocumented individuals in our country. legislation must craft a comprehensive solution that among other things continues to secure our borders, punishes unscrupulous employers who deploy immigrants. they have to learn english, work, pay taxes, stay out of trouble and then get to the back of the line; but they do obtain legal status, which is so important. the framework proposed by the bipartisan group of eight senators meets this criteria and i hope we'll soon have a bill to send through the committee process and bring to the floor for a vote. i've long said when my rep

way. >> jimmy, i think -- i know mr. obama is sitting high, though he got whacked by the federal court today but i think democrats can be pretty stupid, too. if they reject entitlement reform, if they say we're just going to raise taxes like this budget deal, just taxes and no spending, if they don't deal with federal debt and they don't deal with the economic growth problem, then the democrats are going to be stupid and they're going to give away what advantage they have now. >> charlie cook wrote a really great column today about this issue in 2016 it will still be about the economy, stupid, right? here's the problem. the republicans, you just said bill clinton and ronald reagan. i appreciate that. you also described a dead white man and a nearly dead white man. the republican party has got to get off this issue of only appealing to white men and women over 50. the country is changing and it's changing rapidly. >> in fairness we're having a conversation about bobby jindal -- >> but you dismissed him as a serious presidential candidate. >> i didn't dismiss him. i said his tactic was d

. some republicans say this move to do immigration reform ultimately won't help republicans. i think in some ways, that's true because latinos, as well as the other folks in the obama coalition, do seem to see a more activist role for the government and that's been a -- continuing to be a problem for republicans. >> but, joe, when we went and did marches in arizona, you have wholesome latino families, middle class and some even doing better than middle class, pulled over because they were automatically a suspect. so this is not about people's class and welfare. this is about people's rights. >> yes. but you know, racism is appalling. and the association of a latino with low income is ridiculous. but as nia malika says, they're reelgt in the sense not about the taker part, but they're right in the sense it's not just about immigration or respect, it's also that the latino, the emerging latino population, supports a greater role for government, a greater fairness in government, they're socially liberal after yeeshs of saying oh, they're anti-choice. latinos are the most pro-choice segm

adopt meaningful filibuster reform? i mean, we've got, you know, this ruling by the court in washington on some of the appointments of president obama. you can be sure that mitch mcconnell is probably behind closed doors, smiling about that. he is not there to help the president. but the question is why don't the democrats realize what is happening here? they may realize it, but they're afraid to move forward on it. and people are frustrated in this country. this is what they voted for. >> no, ed, you know, i agree with you. that's why i did not vote for that package. and i think what everybody has got to understand, and you've made this very clear, this is not some kind of inside the beltway abstraction about senate rules. this is really important stuff, because we have a nation that is demanding action to create millions of jobs to transform our energy system, to come up with a fair tax proposal so the wealthy and large corporations start paying their fair share. we are not going to be able to do those things and many other things, the things, in fact, that mitch mcconnell and his bil

economy stalls. we will have to convince the country to change course. we had to reform entitlements. we had to revisit the healthcare law. clearly president obama does not want us to get that chance. he want his last two years to look just like his first two years of his presidency. it was to perpetuate progressive government for at least a generation. why? he thinks it is the right and to do. to do that, he needs to delegitimize the republican party and house republicans, in particular. he will try to divide us. he will try to get us to fight with each other, question each other so we do not challenge him. if we play into his hands, we will betray the voters who supported us in the country that we serve. we cannot let that happen. we need to be smart. we need to show prudence. what do i mean when i say that? prudence is good judgment in the art of governing. abraham lincoln called it one of the cardinal virtues. it is our greatest obligation as public servants. we have to fund the good in every situation and choose the best means to achieve it. -- find the good in every situation and c

immigration reform. there's going to be a pretty big sticking point on what you do with the 11 million who are already here illegally. president obama's laid out a path to citizenship where they'd pay fines and back taxes, et cetera. a lot of republicans might object to that. but if i could i'd like to go back to something chris said about these steep spending cuts. i've spoken to a lot of people who really are familiar with the nuts and bolts of the budget and how actual lit money gets spent. they say that with the caps that are in place right now, with inflation cutting into those and with population growth, the only way you can really cut spending is p by doing things like firing people at the fbi. because veteran spending is going to increase automatically. president obama wants to spend more on education. that's tough. so these cuts go into effect, but they might find very quickly that it's very difficult to actually implement them. >> last thing here to you, chris, we're hearing about a couple of senators not going to be -- not going to seek re-election. talking about harkin, saxby c
